He s,aid Henderson had a right to be proud of its town, but in serious thought said this great crowd was not her emerely to celebrate a new street and a new white way but to celebrate a returning prosprity.

Small of Elizabeth City, who has held court here this wee!-:, and who presented his fellow townsman, Governor Ehring haus. He told ot some of the things the governor has done in straighten ing out State finances and offered Mr. Ehringhaus as “the greatest governor of the greatest state in the Union.” “I came not so much to make a speech as to extend my congiatula itc'iis to you, he said.

At all times the crowds were good natuied, and everybody seemed to have a happy time of it throughout. There were few arrests, and virtual ly all of them were for petty drunk enness. Cooperative Movement Perhaps at no lime in i lendersonV history has there been a greater co operative movement than this ceie brat ion has been. Every one who helped, and that included almost all who were called on, gave of their funds and their energies. There was really surprise at the bigness of the thing and the excellent manner •in which the day’s program was carried out. It is believed that Henderson made countless thousands of friends and got for itself a world of good will and publicity by its ceie bration.

The Carolina Telephone & Telegraph Company put all its wires underground at its own expense. Many business firms have erected handsome new electric signs in front of their places of business, and all in all the main street gives Hender son a thoroughfare probably without a peer anywhere in the State in towns and cities its size and many much larger. Many Guests It would be impossible to name all the distinguished visitors who were here. In addition to Governor Eh ringhaus, Senator Bailey and Con gressman Cooley, there were Gurney P. Hood, State bank commissioner; Will Woodward, of Rocky Mount, member of the State Highway Com mission for this district; Charles G. Powell, secretary to the governor; Captain Charles D. farmer, head of the State Highway Patrol; and others. J. R. Porter, executive vice-president and George A. Holderness, chairman of the board of the telephone com pany and others were here from Tar boro. Mr. Sutton, president of the power company and others in his organization was also here. There was also W. L. Lumpkin, of Louis burg, member of the General Assem bly, and prominent candidate for speaker of the 1935 House, and John A. Park, publisher of The Raleigh Times; C. A. Upchurch, Jr., of the News and Observer. And so on down the enumeration might continue. In addition to the parade and the night speaking program, there was amusement of various kinds going on at all times during the intervals. A minstrel aggregation furnished part of this. John Lowry’s family helped out. And there were others. The fin al event of the celebration was the street dancing, whiph lasted until around 2 a. m. today. The white peo ple had theirs at the Breckenndge street intersection. The colored peo ple had the block between Montgom ery and Church streets. Local people left their cars at home or parked them far out to give visitors accommodations. Drug stores and eating places did a tremendous business during the day and evening. And let no one forget this: The bril liant lighting on Garnett street was not for last night alone. It is per manent. Tl'hei 62 lights will burn every evening until midnight, and aft er that 24 will burn all night. Addi tional lights are to be installed as quickly as the equipment can be re ceived. It was perhaps the biggest day Henderson ever had. Business suffer ed during the long months the street waa torn up for the work to be done, but everybody now believes it was worth all the cost.
